For the First Group Stage, predict the winner of each game or predict a draw. Post the predicted standings for each group based on your game predictions. If you predict a tie for first place say who you think will win the tiebreaker. If you predict a tie that does not include first place you don't have to break the tie. You will be evaluated based on how many correct result predictions you had (9% of final score), how many points you were off on each team in the standings (12% of final score), and how many group winners you predicted correctly (6% of final score, it is straightforward and you get 1% per group winner predicted correctly) You may provide score predictions if you want but I won't evaluate score predictions until the Semifinals. Now I only care how many points you predict every team to get from every game. FIFA Tiebreakers: 1. Goal differential 2. Goals scored 3. Head-to-head record 4. Head-to-head goal differential 5. Head-to-head goals scored 6. Head-to-head goals with away goals counting double, this can't be used to break a tie with more than two teams The groups are: A: El Salvador, Suriname, Cayman Islands, and Dominican Republic B: Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, Barbados, and Bermuda C: Panama, Dominica, Nicaragua, and Bahamas D: Canada, St. Kitts and Nevis, Puerto Rico, and St. Lucia E: Grenada, Guatemala, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Belize F: Haiti, Antigua and Barbuda, Curacao, and U.S. Virgin Islands The round starts on September 2 and all predictions for this round must be made by then because I'm not doing score predictions for this round. I'll post my predictions later. Please sticky this topic. Feel free to unsticky the previous topic found at http://www.bigsoccer.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1722054. Edit: It might be a good idea to not predict until you know the order the games will be played.
